SocialMediaTrends: Reaction trails alleged abduction of 17 Abuja residents by uniformed men



Nigerians have been vociferous on social media between Tuesday and Wednesday as they lament the alleged kidnapping of one Ameerah and 16 others in Abuja.

A tweep identified as @Ameerah_sufyan had tweeted on Tuesday that she and a few others, including three pregnant women, had been kidnapped at gunpoint at the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

The tweet has since gone viral with well-meaning Nigerians calling upon security operatives to take swift action.

Ripples Nigeria gathered that @Ameerah_sufyan recently made another tweet referring to messages she shared to her WhatsApp’s broadcast list.

In response, the FCT police command made a statement on the incident, assuring Nigerians of work in progress

“The investigative & tactical apparatus on the case remains as discoveries are looking promising.

“Contact is maintained with her family to speed up investigation”, the statement reads.
